UFC welterweight contender Leon Edwards joins Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show to clear the air about being briefly dropped from the rankings to now fighting Khamzat Chimaev on Dec. 19. Edwards explains how he’ll be training for the fight while under lockdown and that he’ll get a title shot with a win in the UFC’s final fight on 2020.

Just watch for the hurdles they're going to put in your way, to get a fair fight, and in the lead up to the fight. Stay sharp Leon. Good luck.

He has received that hyped because of 1 shot absorbed in 3 fights. Literally killed all of the opponents.

I actually think Khamzat will dominate him, i truly believe that. He is dominant in his spirit, along with his good skills and khabib-like endurance. He needs a confident aggressive opponent, not a polite dude. Maybe wrong, but i truly believe that. Leon Edwards seems passive and has not even 1% of Khamzat's will. But Leon seems like a really likeable dude though.

As someone from England. I don’t really like Leon. And hope he gets beat 😂😂 however. He’s come across decent in this interview. Don’t agree with his wonderboy comments. And his comment about lock down hahaha. The first lock down everyone panicked. This lock down. Well. I’m training. Just know that 😂😂😂😂 pretty much like how pretty much everyone has still been going to work in England this lock down haha

1. He didn’t want to fight Wonderboy because we wanted a title fight. 2. He was forced to fight Khamzat after Dana threatened to remove him from the rankings.

Khamzat is already a -190 favorite. You would think sportsbooks would care more about track records and history. But even they know Khamzat is a beast and is going to wreck Leon, badly.

2020 has been great for Ali Abdulaziz and Dana White for sure. I love Khamzat's adittude wanting to smash everyone this seems like a perfect fight to square a lot of things I do think that Khamzat is a real deal otherwise he want be in the UFC but if he beats Leon I'm a firm believer. Overall this fight is going to be epic

I like Leon. Like the way he carries himself. He's a genuine person. It's a shame the company want him to lose because his 'persona' and fighting style isn't conducive towards selling tickets. Also he is from Birmingham. Brummies just don't support their own like the other big cities do

He's not good at putting on a good show. Even if he gets lucky and magically beats Chimaev, he won't bring in as much money as a character like Chimaev for UFC. That's why Dana likes Khamzat over Leon

Leon’s current win streak at welterweight is double the number of wins Gilbert Burns has total at welterweight. No way should Burns get the title shot over Leon. Leon destroys Khamzat in 1 round.

I like Leon but I don’t see him jumping straight to a title shot after a win he’s not been active. He’s got a tough fight against a good grappler I think he needs to focus on that. I Think Colby should get his rematch next just because he’s back in the win column and I think him vs Usman is a must see.

Corny when he laughed at not knowing who Gerald is, dude has won many straight against good competition yet most casuals have no idea who he is. Also all this “it is what it is” is nonsense he could always brainstorm on ways to become more popular but he just doesn’t want to.

Chimaev has the advantage because he has had 3 straight fights and Leon definitely has ring rust. Fantastic, I would be surprised if Leon wins even though I like him
